Riverway, Townsville

(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
One of the city’s most exciting and dynamic areas is Riverway, offering a combination of commercial, cultural, and leisure/sports activities. This riverfront parkland, opened in 2006, stretches for 11 km (7 mi) along the Cross River. The nearby business district, where you can visit a number of trendy shops and cafés, is connected to the parkland area by a pathway stretching along the shore. Enjoy a variety of water sports at the site’s calm lagoon, or drop by the nearby cricket stadium (with a capacity of over 10,000 visitors) to experience the famous Australian game day atmosphere. A convenient arts center and gallery are located in the area as well, hosting regular exhibitions, plays, and concerts. Using our custom trip planner, Townsville attractions like Riverway can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
